During our 2019 recruitment season, while our outstanding team of recruitment principals visited university career fairs across Canada, we hosted a Free Trip to Taiwan contest for candidates who visited our booth and left us a resume. The purpose of the giveaway was to give one new teacher a sample experience of living and teaching abroad, as well as to promote teaching in Taiwan. The contest was held across over a dozen universities across Canada with over 300 applicants.
We spent a weekend at Atayalbalay Village learning about the history and culture of Atayal people. Our local guides were welcoming and eager to share their customs and traditions with us through different interactive activities, like singing, dancing, trapping and hunting, archery, and making traditional foods. Not only did we learn so much about the local culture, we also had a fun time participating in the activities and spending time together with fellow teachers.
In many parts of East Asia, the emergence of soft pink and white blossoms signals the arrival of spring and the promise of warmer weather. When compared with other countries in Asia, like Japan and Korea, Taiwan's cherry blossom season arrives earlier and is longer. It’s a season that attracts many people, young and old, to the mountains of Taiwan to take in the sight of this annual natural phenomenon.
